Lovely pictures. Thanks!

My question is - why is Joe pushing his car from the passenger side? :lol:

Thanks Teddy. We will look into it, at the risk of you losing one spot in PAX position.

Re: GGR #6 at Marina...

Well, it was two days of fun at Marina. Turnout on both days was impressive. It was great seeing you all. Andrew showed us all how to drive really fast through the course. I know he has had reliability issue with his car in the past, but it was a shame to see Steve Lau on the side for a while. Here ...

Re: GGR #6 at Marina...

it was indeed great seeing everyone at Marina today and yesterday (some of us were brave enough to participate in both weekend days for the zone event). I agree with the course being fun. It rewarded smooth driving. Most of us got faster when we backed off in turns a little bit. Clockwise route appe...

Re: AX 3 - Videos

Hi Everyone, The course was a really fun change up! I had a blast. I wish my second gear was longer. Towards the end of the day, I had to back off the throttle going into the Chicago box, I was about the hit the rev limiter. Also through 2/3 of the slalom following the box, I was bouncing hard on t...

Re: AX 3 - Videos

Hi Derek,

Thanks for starting the thread. You were way faster than me at Marina in your 981S. Let's look for a stock muffler, so we can compete in the same class :P.

Here is a link to the video of my last run, which is was also my fastest - https://1drv.ms/v/s!AvpsCl-IH8Bth5pdXEGoCKBsiXIlmg.

Hey Derek, thanks for getting this thread going and thanks for catching those precious moments. I will try wrestling if this autocrossing does not work out :P! Nice job with both the cars over the weekend. I like the vantage point high above the ground. I suggest you remove the stock muffler from yo...

Re: GGR AX#02 Prelim Results

Joe, welcome to the 2018 season. Good to see you one event ahead of schedule.

It is happening right in front of our own eyes - transformation of Andrew Blyholder from a human to a super human. Just in time for infinity war!

Re: Course map for GGR Autocross #1

I used Solidworks to attach skin on a block, add cone elements at marked locations, define camera movement and you see the result. Needs refinement. I would love to continue doing this if there is enough interest.
